Xavier is committed to being a safe and nurturing community of care, where the rights and dignity of all children and young people are upheld and protected, and where all students have a right to expect that our College will always act to protect them from any kind of harm.
A "Feeling Unsafe" poster has been placed in each classroom of the school. The message is that "Nothing is so awful that you can't talk to someone about it – so tell an adult you trust!" This could be the Principal, a Student Protection Contact, Pastoral Care Teacher, Classroom Teacher or Counsellor.
Student Protection Contacts are staff nominated by the school to receive reports of inappropriate behaviour within the school and report these to the Principal. Student Protection Contacts are listed on the Student, Parent and Staff Portals.
Complaints of inappropriate behaviour or situations where a student feels unsafe can be reported by discussing them with one of the Student Protection Contacts, the Principal, PC Teacher, Classroom Teacher, Counsellor. Student Protection Contacts and other staff contact information is found in the school directory.

In line with BCE practices, Xavier Catholic College has a 'School Child and Youth Risk Management Strategy'. This can be accessed here.
